About Me

Hi there!

My name is Calvin, and I have lived in Japan for over nine years. I live with my wife near Asakusa, Tokyo. I love the nightlife of east Tokyo, and I am eager to find some new friends!

I regularly set up language learning, meet and greet, and general ''drinking communication'' events. If you are interested in joining, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.

Sincerely,
Calvin

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I run a local English-Japanese communication bar and regularly set up language learning, meet and greet, and general ''drinking communication'' events.

If you are interested in joining, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.

Interests

Please feel free to join me and my friends at Smile Bar and Cafe in Asakusa for some conversation and drinks.

New to Tokyo or just traveling? I have lived all over Japan in the past, and I would love to share my tips and experiences with you. I can help you create a travel plan or give you some restaurant and hotel recommendations. Don't hesitate to ask!

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a big fan of classic Japanese cinema, such as Kurosawa and Mizoguchi.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I took a 45 hour local train journey to northern Japan in heavy winter conditions. Even though I was stranded in Akita, it was such a blast!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am not entirely fluent in Japanese, but I can pass along many tips and tricks I used to overcome the language barrier. I'm more than happy to help facilitate communication between you and Japanese locals!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I look forward to sharing drinks, experiences, language, and cultural information with all of you!
